Subject: Theda Bara was a Terror
Please note this review concerns the film itself, not the quality of the upload, which I haven't viewed. Though it seems to lack tinting, which would make things more clear in one scene when the lights when out.

This is not a great film. It only deserves 6/10. However, it somehow is surprisingly entertaining despite the many flaws and iffy pacing, and Theda Bara is great fun to watch. What a shame so little of her work survives.

I recommend you see it. Theda Bara is da bomb. Just remember the lack of tinting in this print spoils some scenes.
